The program provides essential knowledge and skills in computer programming, facilities management, data communications and security, and systems analysis and design.
Admissions requirements: Minimum fifty college credits with a GPA of 2.0 or equivalent life experience; proficiency in word processing and spreadsheet use (non-credit workshops are available to meet this requirement); three years of high school mathematics or college equivalent.
